Wanh, wanh, wanh.

Albuquerque’s first frost was Sunday night. In one swoop, my back door container garden has been wiped out.

Goodbye, pretty Gaillardia!

Thank you for your cheerful blooms which greeted me every day from June until November.

Goodbye delicious basil!

Ouch! You look terrible. But thank you for your service all summer – you tasted great. Still have lots of basil seeds – any takers?

Goodbye pretty Zinnias and Portulaca!

You were happy additions to my container garden, thank you for beautifying the place!

Bye Osteospermum, you’ll be missed!

Dang. Frosts are harsh.

I’ll be back manana, hope to see you back here.
